Product Details

TotalBoat Marine Wood Finish is a protective wood treatment for teak and other wood above the waterline. This flexible, breathable finish provides exceptional weather protection. It's easier to apply and maintain than traditional varnish, with no sanding between coats necessary.

Marine Wood Finish penetrates deeply into the wood pores to create a rich, warm finish, enhancing the natural beauty of your boat's wood. A unique linseed oil and resin formula contains advanced UV inhibitors for greater protection, durability and longevity. Keep your woodwork looking beautiful with the least amount of maintenance necessary.

Goes on like a paint - looks like a varnish

Available in Teak, Satin, and Gloss finishes. Teak is suited for teak and other dark hardwoods. Gloss may be applied over Teak and Satin, but can also be used as a base coat.

  • Use mineral spirits for solvent & cleanup.

Easy to use - beautiful finish

I used the product to refinish a 27 year-old ash and mahogany tiller. It goes on very easy and with three coats the tiller looks brand new.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Stick with Varnish
By Ryan from PA

Verified Purchase

I bought this as an alterative to varnish for a cedar strip canoe I was redoing. The finish never completely dried and remained tacky for days. I eventually had to sand it off because after a week it was still tacky. I thought it was the humidity so I brought the project from the garage to the house. I tried again on the paddle and I had the same problem. Next time Ill stick to varnish.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Withstands the Harsh Florida Environment
By kapiteinterzee from North Port, Florida

Verified Purchase

This is our second purchase of the TotalBoat Marine Wood Finish as we've had success with it on the brightwork of our backyard built 20' LOA, 8' Beam, Ply on Frame Pacific Northwest Dory. We started using it when we first mounted the White Oak Rubrails when the hull was on the strongback. We also used it on our White Oak Sole and the AshToerail. White Oak is a bear to finish and keep clean, but this material, after a year, has held up to the harsh Sun and Environment of the Sun Coast of Florida. We highly recommend it!

Great but very thick so needs thinning
By Don A from Chatham, MA

Verified Purchase

Great product but the first coat needs to be thinned to get a smooth finish on new teak. I used Naptha but the can recommends a Total Boat product. 3 coats and I think the new teak will last a long time.

Finish is really soft and easily damaged
By nickname from Austin Texas

Verified Purchase

The finish left by the product is very soft. After three days of drying I flipped the wood panel over to finish the back side. When I moved the board again I found the finish had slightly stuck to the board it was sitting on and I now have a distinct line across the part. Even worse after leaving for a week I installed the part in the boat. Sitting on the board caused the finish to shift and created wrinkles. I don't know if I did something wrong in the application or if it needs multiple weeks to full cure. In either case I regret the decision on this product and will likely end up pulling off the boat next off-season to strip and re-do with a different product.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Awesome
By Mary from Florida

Verified Purchase

Just applied over the teak colored version. This product is awesome and infinitely easier to use than the varnish I have used for years. One must thin a good bit more than the directions or else it tends to stay gummy, but thin enough it is superb. Since eyebrows and handrails are a pain to varnish, will be using this in the future.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great product
By Kevin from Boylston, MA

Verified Purchase

This finish applies easy and has very good coverage. My only complaint is that dry time is much longer than some of the Total Boat varnishes I have used but once it cures it leaves a beautiful finish.
